ROCKWELL, Iowa – Authorities are investigating what’s being called a “suspicious” death in Rockwell.

Rockwell police and EMTs, the Mason City Fire Department, and the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office were called to the 200 block of East Main Street just after 4 pm Wednesday. They say they arrived to find a deceased male.
